Top 2018 U.S. Colleges

Sunday, October 15, 2017 - 14:23

The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education have released a list of 2018 best college rankings.

Northeastern schools almost unanimously swept the board, with the top two spots going to Harvard University and Columbia University, respectively. Next up MIT and Stanford tied, then Duke, Yale, Cal Tech, U Penn, Princeton, and Cornell, Wall Street Journal reports.

The score was determined with fifteen factors within four categories including student outcomes like graduate salaries account for 40 percent; academic resources account for 30 percent; student engagement counts for 20 percent; and the remaining 10 percent values student and staff diversity.

Harvard's reputation doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon, though. One Harvard student told the WSJ he credits much of his success to his teachers, who for the most part, have served in public office.

On the other coast, Cal Tech earned the top spot for student engagement, owed in part to a three-to-one student-to-teacher ratio. Diversity accounted for a measly 10 percent of a school's total score, and data shows public schools are leading the way, with UCLA coming out on top.
